Crowbars

OK, so we all know that the head named Roger in Lost was just a coincidence. But what about this?

That weird looking scrambled website is part of an ARG (Alternate Reality Game) that was together in promotion of the new Nine Inch Nails CD. Trent's latest is a concept album... a story about a dystopian future where people are drugged into being docile and obedient. Websites like the one above were designed to appear as though they come from this dystopian future, and each one reveals different aspects of the story.

I always find these kind of online campaigns fascinating, but that's not actually why I'm bringing it up here. No, the reason I'm mentioning it is because someone emailed me to point out something on that one site that would be particularly interesting to Sam and Fuzzy readers.

The site is a phony police report about the fictional drug "Opal". But scroll down and have a look at the the drug's different names (listed to the right of the big bold "opal").

Crowbar? The drug is called Crowbar? Now that is a strange coincidence. Hah!

Chain of Pain

Links of hate!
Links of fate!
Links that bait
my irrate state!

My goldfish died!
I stubbed my toe!
My hat's too tight!
I stubbed my... other toe!

CHAIN OF PAIN!
Life is a neverending
CHAIN OF PAIN!

My milk expired!
I lost my watch!
My french fries are too dry!
This coupon expired last Thursday!
My cellphone is getting very poor reception!
These toothpicks are kind of pointy!
Actually, I think I cut my gums.
Is it bleeding?
Look and tell me if it's bleeding.
It's bleeding, isn't it.
Really? Huh!
I swear I can taste blood.

I CAN TASTE MY OWN BLOOD!

CHAIN OF PAIN!
CHAIN OF PAIN!
CHAIN OF PAIN!

Go go underground

We caught our first (and only, so far) glimpse of "the underground" back in December. The Grrbils, on the other hand, made their first of several appearances waaaaaay back here! Wokka wokka wokka.

That's all for now. As usual, double-length comics lead to short, tired rants. See you on Wednesday!
